Been Waiting for a Reason to Start Therapy? Here It Is.

Most people think they need a reason to go to therapy. After all, if your life appears to be going well, then you probably believe that there’s no room for improvement. You have a stable job, fulfilling relationships and hobbies that you enjoy. Nothing seems “wrong” from the outside. Yet perhaps there’s overhanging sadness that just won’t seem to go away, and you just don’t feel happy or satisfied. No matter what your situation is, therapy provides the toolset you need to unlock your greatest potential. Here at JCA Mental Health, we believe that you deserve support no matter what reason you choose therapy. Whether you’re facing a major life transition or just need someone to talk to, we encourage you to reach out to our compassionate team for guidance.

What Is the Most Common Reason People Seek Therapy?

The most common reason people go to therapy is to receive treatment for anxiety or depression, which tend to go hand-in-hand. However, it’s important to remember that a person’s anxiety and depression have to be severe to warrant therapy. These conditions can be challenging to manage even if they are mild, and anyone with ongoing symptoms should speak to a professional. 

Besides, there are so many reasons a person may feel anxious or depressed, and no two people experience it the exact same way. That’s why JCA Mental Health prioritizes diversity in what we do. Our team works with patients from all different backgrounds, and we fully understand your situation so you don’t have to spend your sessions explaining yourself to us. 

Our patients come to us for many different reasons, and not just for mental health treatment. Perhaps you’re questioning your gender or sexual identity, or you’re struggling to cope with the challenges of becoming a young adult. We’re here to guide you through every one of life’s transitions as you develop key coping skills to continue your progress beyond our therapy sessions.

All Reasons for Therapy Are Valid

It’s true that many people visit a therapist when they are facing a stressful life event. But what one person considers stressful can be different than another person’s definition. All of us have unique triggers and different life experiences. There’s nothing wrong with going to therapy because you need extra support, even if you aren’t certain why you’re feeling the way you are. 

Think of therapy as a form of preventative healthcare. We are like personal trainers for your emotions and mind, and we can help you develop a better understanding of yourself, your triggers and the challenges you face. 

You Can Manage Your Mental Health Before a Crisis Happens

You don’t want to wait until the ship has sunk to call for help. Therapy gives you a place to build coping skills to better prepare you for when a crisis does occur. We can’t control what happens to us in life, no matter how much we would like to. Instead, we can prepare ourselves by gaining insight into what makes us tick, as well as what helps us cope.
